Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This tour makes covering these top Yucatan attractions easier (and less expensive) than trying to arrange transportation independently, especially if you're traveling with your family or large groups. Bring a few pesos if you want to rent a locker or life jacket for easy floating at the cenote.
After early morning hotel pickup, travel with your guide to Chichen Itza, the city-cradle of ancient Mayans. During a 2.5-hour tour, explore this UNESCO site and gain insight into its top landmarks, including the Kukulkan pyramid, an astronomical observatory and the ball court. Learn about the dangerous game of pok-ta-pok played by warriors. You’ll also have free time to enjoy Chichen Itza on your own.
 
Take a break from sightseeing with a swim in Ik-Kil, an underground cenote, followed by a hearty buffet lunch. Combined time for the cenote and lunch is two hours.
 
Then, visit Valladolid, Yucatán’s third-largest city also called the Sultaness of the East. Spend 30 minutes getting to know the quiet 16th-century city.  
 Your 11-hour tour ends with drop-off back at your Cancun hotel that evening.

A long day but what a great day, pictures can't really do Chichen Itza justice you have to see it with your own eyes, amazing.Our tour guide Ricciardo was fantastic, very knowledgeable, funny, thoughtful and kind. My 11 year old son loved it all but his favourite part was the Ik Kil Cenote at the end of the day.

Very knowledgeable guide. A good tour to gain a small look at the Mayan history. Although a long day - well worth the journey.

We would have like to have spent more time in Valladolid. We were only given a very short time to visit and then rushed to get to lunch at an official gift shop/luncheon area where we joined many other groups for a subpar cafeteria style meal where we had three times the amount of extra time in their shop that we did in Valladolid. Our tour guide was informative and entertaining throughout the tour, especially when we visited Chichen Itza, and the teenagers liked swimming at Ik Kil, but the first half of the day could have been much better.

Resting in Cancun and not going to Chichen Itza - it's just barbarity. The tour is combined, it gives an opportunity to get acquainted with the typical colonial town of Valladolid, explore Chichen Itza and visit and swim in the Ik-Kil cenote. When you are in Chichen Itza, one immediately recalls Mel Gibson's Apocalypto. Be sure to choose a tour with a visit to Ik Kiel cenote.

From start to finish this was a great trip - we’ll worth the money and time. Highlights were the pyramids and the cenote. Ricardo, our tour guide, was excellent. He gave us a lot of facts but in a friendly and laid back manner. We learned much about the Mayan culture. Shout out to Mauricio and Martin
